A cross between The Snow Queen, Game of Thrones and rapper Ice Cube sits proudly in the bowels of the boutique-hôtel Kube. Here you are in the heart of the quartier de La Chapelle, where a polar wind blows across the Passage Ruelle. Here, in the remnants of a post-apocalyptic world, you'll find the only Ice Bar in the Paris Region, where life has frozen into an enormous block of ice. Chills guaranteed.

A completely frosted decor

There's no need to put on your après-ski to enjoy the experience to the full. Gloves and doudounes are provided as soon as you enter Elsa's grotto. Wrapped up in your best uniform, you're ready to discover a cube entirely carved out of ice, at a temperature of -20°C. For 25 minutes, you'll be immersed in an atmosphere that changes every year. After the Canadian forest with the Game of Thrones chair and the "World War II" painting, the setting is transformed into the castle of the frosty Beauty and the Beast. Red and pink roses and other flowers are displayed in ice cubes. It's a somewhat romantic world, but above all insolite, perfect for a souvenir photo, as long as you avoid the stalactites.

Vodka-Martini. Shaker or spoon?

As the cold gradually takes hold of your body, you'll warm up to the rhythm of hip-hop and R&B hits as you sip a fiery cocktail. Because at the Ice Kube Bar, you don't sit down to warm up over winter dishes, you shake a glass in your hand. Behind the bar, the mixologists are busy preparing a potion based on one of the leading alcohols in icy weather. Russian, of course: vodka. Depending on their inspiration, they'll deglaze your gullet with drinks that may be spicy, but they're delicious.

You may even be lucky enough to experience the intense thrill of gin. Because yes, vodka isn't the only spirit served. At times, gin is infused with mint and black pepper, then diluted with lemon juice, sugar and ginger. At other times, it reveals its character by being infused with pear, married with Perrier, Campari, lemon juice and sugar. For the intrepid, a shot of vodka infused with orange peel and chilli bird is poured directly into the spout.

This is an experience that must be booked without fail and, of course, should be consumed in moderation if you don't want to find yourself in a fog on the way out. And to feed your stomach afterwards, head to the mountain restaurants in the Paris Region.
